, i think, well, because we have the best damn navy in the world. this was not an extravagant or hyper bolic statement t. was simply a statement of fact. it was a fact that not only i knew. it was a fact which other nations understood. even one carrier battle group had more military fire power than any other nation's entire navy, and we had two of them on the way to taiwan. so, i was confident that no one was going to challenge the fleet that we were sending there. this -- and in fact, they did not challenge it even before our two carrier battle ships arrived in taiwan, the crisis was over and the maneuvers had been subsided. this positive result was possible because of the military capability of our navy and because both carrier battle groups were battle ready and able to steam towards their destination in less than 24 hours. so, why were we able to respond so effectively? certainly one important reason, because the technology in our ships was the best in the world. the results are true, that the training and the spirit of our sailors was superb. and we had absolutely first-class lea
says goodbye >> navy seals long been regarded as hero of course and deservedly so but since they took down osama bin laden last year the number of people posing as navy seals has really soared. we track down one such imposter and tonight dan has a story he first broke last night on 7 news at 11:00. >>reporter: members of the navy special operation force the seals launch a daring nighttime raid killing osama bin laden. they rescue a ship captain from somali pirates killing 3 of them with simultaneous head shots fired from goat boat. such exploit add to the legend of the navy seals but also have sparked a surge in the number of imposters. >> make no mistake seals are the no. 1 targeted group in this country for imposters. everybody is a navy seal. >>reporter: he's a real retired navy seal who runs a training camp in virginia. prep course for young man plan to go become seals and for others who just want to test themselves. but he has also made it his life mission to expose the phonies. >> this goes deep for you. why. >> you two to the memorial services i'm tired of going to them.
powerful navy, and that that navy would be charged with maintaining the freedom of those sea lanes. we had, of course, to be concerned as to whether there would be a challenge for that. we observed that the rise and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval
a great addition to the already exciting opportunity to see the navy and our armed forces at work. some of you may be wondering exactly why am i here, what's a ranger doing up here during fleet week. i'll try to explain that a little bit. this is our 40th anniversary of having a national park in san francisco. so, those strikev lands at the golden gate hills right behind that helicopter there are now part of the golden gate national parks. and that happened 40 years ago when the army decided that those lands were no longer necessary for national defense. so, that strategic entrance to this harbor was the last land that our troops and sailors and marines and soldiers would see if they departed for the pacific theater in world war ii and korea and vietnam, and also the first thing they would see upon returning back to the bay area. so, between the presidio and the head lands, we now have wonderful park lands that have been converted. we call it converting from post to park. repurposing those lands from national defense to environmental defense. and i believe it is probably the most access
in the marine corps is similar to the navy. we have the installation, the regional installation command and also partners with the operational foresite. we allow the operational foresight, we maintain those but then we coordinate, cooperate, with the operational foresight once the call comes in for support. so we're able to do that obviously through memorandum of understandings and we have agreements and our wing operating orders allow for the fact the operational control, at least under operational response, maintains with the operators. the third aircraft wing maintains operational control but we send our operatives out to be controlled by the civic sight. we're comfortable with that and that's matured a lot in the last couple years. >> talked a lot about command and control and agreements and moving resources. one other question that came up yesterday we were discussing yesterday is how do communications occur specifically with regard to when we start talking about air ops and moving air resources around, how do we ensure that we have that interoperatability that we discussed so much yes
fortunate to find a partner in the end in the united states navy. the salvage aerv of the navy which sits in naval sea systems command. it may be referred to in the staff report sue salve, supervisor for all salvage operations of the navy. the navy, then, in order to execute these funds has a previously competitively bid contract with titan salvage for all salvage work on the west coast of the americas. that has been titan to salvage. nav sea has worked with options for how to get it done and where it goes subcontract wise. phase 1, the part all the other options have in common goes with the sections removed this way [speaker not understood]. the previous slides illustrated. phases 2 and 3 get a bit more complicated because we have the option of trying to keep some continuity of contracting and just jump onto the navy's general type salvage and let them work with all the subcontractors. that brings with it some pass through costs. this has a particularly high administrative cost because it is designed for salvage work for ship wreck and there are a lot of unknowns with that. alternately,
and part of the project, asked the navy rather to expend all of its funds in the most productive way they can. and at the end put it in a form can easily be returned to us and we go out to bid. these other options here top wise 80 aepre, nav sea, the navy would start to fund them before they're out of the $3 million. we would be forced to go to a sole source contracting vehicle for those. so, i didn't mean to get too much into the wave there. it gets complicated in phase ii and 3. that is the the subject of the resolution that is before you. so, the purpose of the m-o-u is my favorite shout out, by the way, just a side-view. the m-o-u nav sea and titan salvage dry dock number one to begin phase 1 of the work. it gives them something to point to, lest the coast guard a excuse them of stealing it when they toe it to pier 50 of the shipyard. that is also the vehicle that is going to contain the release of liability which is important piece of this. the navy will not proceed without it because salvage operations are inherently risky and if, you know, salvages sometimes sink during tow an
row of medicine for the navy. i lacked at his bay oh in the program, educated in georgia and he's had a great career in the navy commanding several hospitals, winning several awards and his most recent command was as the commander of walter reed, and i was so glad that he was here to hear the panel that we had with our medical peer to peer exercise. and he's going to talk to us now about navy medicine. with that, please help me welcome vice admiral matthew nathan. (applause). >> thank you, general, very much. well, it's a pleasure here and i'm honored to be able to speak in front of such a distinguished audience. secretary schultz, mrs. schultz, pleasure it see you and you lend tremendous gaffe tas to this program. general spees, distinguished flag officers, general officers and mostly everybody here who is in the readiness business, i am honored to be speaking to a group of people and that would include i think everybody in this hanger deck who is part of that cadre of individuals who when bad things happen and everybody runs out, your job is to run in. it doesn't get better than
but it is a very small part of the navy. >> this -- record is complete the service? >> separate inside the navy but they would claim when they served aboard they should follow the rules amadeus served ashore to follow the regulations of the army and in 1832 they are a separate service inside the department of labor. the mission did not change so much then they were ships guards to the 20th century but but jack of all trains mostly serving as a landing party the marines would always participate and with the start of the 20th century they took bond of variety of other missions 80, philippines nicaragua then they started to create amphibious landing forces. >>host: what was the marine corps reputation? >> not very good. everybody thinks of them today as the most prestigious and that has been validated by eight numerous polls but not that way even at the start of world war ii. boys found them to be rough and rowdy and the least desirable and ranked last the least popular service nationwide. it was similar to that p
climb into the trees and when the navy get in there just about at the top of the trees. that's what we found. the cost was close to 30 billion u.s. dollars. how we organize, well, we have something similar that you have. we have the national emergency office under the internal affair minister and they have offices in the different counties, in the different places in chile this emergency office request aid directly to the joint chief of staff and joint chief of staff to the army, navy or air force and then we move the pieces to put the aid where they need it. the scenario, the beginning when we face this was the same thing we are talking about in this seminar. the necessity was access because everything was, the delivery was absolutely hampered because of the roads so we have to clean it. water, food, electricity and communications. another need at that time to do that is field hospital generators, housing, sat coms, purifying water systems and mobile bridges. so the force was at the beginning just to distribute the aid and at the end start doing law enforcement when the govern

's canadian ship, edmond. she was one of royal canadian's navy's 12 kingston's classics. built in 1985 as part of the maritime project. he was built with sophisticated warfare equipment. she has proven herself extending far beyond her title. her main elements include 40 millimeter gun, and two, 50 caliber man guns. edmonton is a sophisticated weapon in canada an arsenal. he's has a draft of only 11 feet. she has a displacement of 1,000 tons. edmonton was laid down on 8 august, 1995 by halifax unlimited in halifax, nova scotia and commissioned in the canadian forces on 21 june, 1987 and then asigned to maritime forces pacific based in british columbia. since that time, she has participated in numerous coastal prayings, including escourt operations, century and rescue, fisheries patrols and good will port visits. the most recent accomplishments came in 2010 when she travelled to puerta vallarta, mexico. in support of maritime security to the 2010 winter olympic games in vancouver. ladies and gentlemen, at this time, please stand and salute the edmonton. thank you. please be seated. as with the m
] coming through, we're now able to do ships for the navy seal of command that we couldn't do at all. the u.s. government is now actually scheduling ships to the san francisco yard based on the availability of the dry dock. we've had discussions yesterday about when is the richard burt coming in. richard burth is another very large project like the matthew perry, like the alan shepherd. there's only two dry dockses in the pacific basin that can pick them up, one is in guantanamo, one -- guam and one is in san francisco. i have to say thank you to the port of san francisco for the hard work and dedication of the teams there and the vision that they have for the shipyard and for the industry. i mean, monique's cruise, monique's teams are without equal. honest to goodness, it has really been a meerctionv you are to work with them and i look forward to the things we're moving forward on. the yard, san francisco, we're going to have one of the busiest years the yard has ever had, period, end of story. we're growing in a very tough market and we're growing in a tough market in no small part due
fleet, many battleships. it was the fourth largest navy in the world. and churchill was very worried that if france was conquered, then hitler would seize the french fleet. and the arithmetic was, if you put the german fleet, which was considerable, they had the bismarck coming along, together with italian fleet which was an ally of the germans and at a considerable in the mediterranean, if you can put that together with the french fleet which was the fourth largest fleet in the world, now you have a navy that was larger than the british fleet. and if that happened, it's game, set and match for britain. they could have controlled the sea lanes for the island. it was going to be over. so churchill implored them to keep fighting because he was worried about the french battleships. in disarray, very overwhelmingly conquered. and a certain element in france decided it was better to try to come to an agreement with the germans about how they could then drop out of the war. and an interesting little tale is that when, when this element began to grow in france, because the government was fl
which we coordinate with cal fire and the navy we have annual exercise and we hit that every springtime prior to the fire season. i think what's also, it's important to remember that although it was stressed, the military members are members of the community as well so let's not forget that as far as active duty. although we're transient in nature, sometimes we're in deployment, many of us are home owners and we live in that community. we are part of that community as well. just like the guard, we have an interest in protecting our friends and neighbors. sustainment is, it's important to us and we'll maintain it especially on the region side. we're able to have these long-standing relationships while the operating force side goes forward and supports the on-going efforts, we are able to stay back here and sustain those relationships. >> just to follow on that, the navy squadrons that provide fire fighting capability are a combination of active and reserve components. one benefit of reserve components is more longevity is pilots in the squadrons. you may have people who have been th
was determined to work hard and chase my dreams. as you heard after high school, i joined the navy, married my wifing ann, went to community college, went to the university of missouri, kansas city, smu for law school, and i started practicing law, and i practiced that for nine years, and i helped people build companies or buy things, finance things, and then i just decided i wanted to try to do it myself. i started a hospital company, and nine years later, we had 3433 hospitals, 285,000 employees, and it was just by doing the right thing every day, solving somebody's needs. is there an american dream left? do you have a shot anymore? can you start with struggling parents who teach you values and things like that and still build things? is the dream still alive? at the time, and still today, president obama's in the white house, and he's building a legacy of big government. at the same time, american families are worried about one thing -- if they have a job, worried about keeping it, and if they don't have a job, they are worried about getting a job, but in the last four years, what's happene
